Emory physicist opens new window on glass puzzle

Abstract:
Nanotechnology is one example of a field that can benefit from research into the behavior of colloidal glass and plastics in tight spaces. "When making machines as small as a cell, people have found that they're even more fragile than you might expect," Weeks said."One interesting thing is that small plastic structures become more fragile because, when they are really tiny, they're less glassy."
